Tinkerbelle was due July 6, 1998..but to our surprise, she was born May 23, 1998...one month and one week earley. She was 16 1/2" tall and weight about 10 pounds.
This standing up stuff is tough. Mom laughed and said I kind of looked like a spider. I am a week old in these pictures. I get to stay in the air conditioned barn since my lungs aren't fully developed. I get to go outside some now when it's cool ??? (get real, this is Texas).
I finally figured out this nursing stuff. Mom and Dad (Brenda & Lonnie) had to hold me up under my "real Mom" (Molly) and hold the teat in my mouth. My legs were so wobbly, I just couldn't reach. I can now run around the pen and drive my Mom crazy! I'm even getting to play with the other foals now!!!
Time for a
nap. Mom and God are watching over. Thanks for all of your prayers and asking
how I am.
Look at me NOW!
This photo was taken in May 2001. I am 3 years old and 30" tall.
